Added this edgy lady to my portrait collection in the sunroom. She’s very much inspired by a painting found on google so... she’s not an original idea!

Just delivered some galleries this week and having all the cozy feels knowing my couples can relive their wedding day with each other but are also able to share these memories with their future babies. Hopefully, these future little ones will look at their parents’ photos and see real, organic, unguarded, and beautiful exchanges between two people who adore one another. Double tap if you agree!
These earrings are her grandma’s. That’s why detail photos matter. Hopefully she’ll look at this image years later and think of her.
Let me share a few fun (and ever so eerie) facts about Chris and Jen's big day: Jen is marrying Chris O'Brien, and my maiden name is Jen O'Brien. The videographer for their day is Javee (btw he's pretty rad, check him out! https://www.jv-films.com/), pronounced J.V., my current initials. And Chris's dad's first and last name is my dad's first and last name and his mom's first and last name is different from my mom's first and last name by one letter. But you know the greatest fact about these two? They're not just convicted in name only. Their character and faith is what guides them on the daily. In a world where standing out can be a little scary, Chris and Jen live with a faith that draws them to love others in a way that they have been loved first. Their loyalty, character, work ethic and compassion are the first traits people see when they meet them. They were the first traits I saw when I met them. And their devotion to do what is right, regardless of circumstance, is inspiring for anyone fortunate enough to cross their path. And the coolest fact of all (I know I said this before), is that they're married now, and able to combine their extraordinary strengths into one power source and truly, truly make the world a better place. From their missions trips to other countries, to being a faithful friend to their neighbor, these two live in a way that convicts others to follow, and I am so, so excited you found one another! Congrats to Chris and Jen!
